Take another deep breath and open mind to be like the vast open sky. Observe the flow of emotions within and body sensations. Anytime you feel anxious, sad, lonely or afraid, journal your experience in the moment to expand your awareness. Anytime you feel fatigued, stressed or distracted by externals, journal those experiences as well. Increasing awareness with an open heart is the threshold for evolution of true nature.
Breathe deeply and relax your mind to be like the vast open sky. Observe negative energies within such as inner critic and doubtful side of self who blocks the emergence of your true nature.

Stay present with an open heart and increased awareness in the moment. Remember there is always so much more to you than you know!

This comes from being mindful about all your actions for balanced overall wellness and ability to immensely forgive others inadequacies. “Being” the energy of love makes greater ease possible along with sheer delight and feelings of ecstasy deep within.

Be good to yourself. Make a deep commitment to leading a mindful life where you will regularly create everything your body/mind needs to maintain a natural sense of vitality within. This is the life force of your existence, also known as chi in Chinese philosophy and prana in India.
Eat well, commit to a variety of exercises you enjoy, and make sure you get enough sleep and downtime throughout each day. This is vital in order to shift from regularly experiencing moments of fatigue, frustration and impatience. Harnessing the “right” effort with “right” concentration ensures mindful liveliness and rebirth of your true beauty which was fully present in early years!
Concentrate more on what feels right deep within. If you have been obsessed with seeking ways to fix things to quell physical discomforts, shift in the moment to simply relax. Identify your emotions and allow them to drift by like weather that continuously changes. What is here in the moment shall pass by. Bring unconditional love and acceptance to the moment. Know that peace and greater ease is always available to you any time you are ready to receive it.
The body rides through ever-changing emotions, similar to going in and out of withdrawal from sugars, caffeine, alcohol, drugs and nicotine. Emotions are erupted by all these and more. If you are constantly stimulating your adrenaline and nervous system, it is now time to start a more easier path in life. Breaking free from outer stimulus allows you to feel more at ease and is surely one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself!
Maintain a peaceful body. Practice mindfulness in the moment to settle any discomforts you may have. Breathe deep and release mental chatter and tension within, then return to state of calmness and equanimity. Having a peaceful body greatly assists us in being able to focus and concentrate fully on what is happening in the moment and then mindfully decide what to do next.
Our body is like an antenna to soul and life energy. It is the portal to much more ease in life. Remember that life is not a marathon race that requires you to push self for reaching certain destinations. It is all about the journey.
Journey forth with a peaceful body every moment of the way! Feeling more at ease will be your new reality everyday!
